Since this is an OTA update and given the fact that we do not have its download links yet, you’ll have to wait for a few days before it makes its way to your phone. If you’re in too big a hurry, you can try mashing the update button in Settings > General > About phone > Software updates as much as you like. Do tell us about the new feature enhancements if you happen to receive this update.
Apart from the addition of Download Booster and Kids Mode, users have noticed improved battery life, faster performance and smoother UI animations after installing this update. Samsung also appears to have made KNOX v2.0 look a bit more streamlined now.
